The 'Prince of Persia: Sands of Time' star admits that because women are objectified and often treated as a just a 'piece of a**', she nearly quit very big films.
British actress Gemma Arterton has threatened to walk off movie sets in the past after she was mistreated by sexist studio bosses. The "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" star claims women are objectified and often treated as a just a "piece of a**" in the male-dominated movie industry.
Arterton, 24, tells GQ magazine, "I've nearly walked off very big films before, and I would, because I don't want that in my life. I want to enjoy the work I do. I'm looking at working with people I get on with, that respect me, that don't just see me as a piece of a**. Which I have experienced as well."
Arterton, who just returned from Paris to promote her latest movie "Tamara Drewe", also shares her time while in there. "There are pictures of me everywhere in those f**king hot pants. It's weird and still baffling, but I see it as not me. It's the character. That's how I get my head around it," she says.
